This short portrays the daily life on a pasture 1900 metres above sea level in the Ticino Canton. The pasture is run by a young couple: Marianna, the cheese-maker, and Quinto, the cowherd. Early in the morning, Quinto rounds up the cows so that they can be milked. The milk reaches the dairy before 8 am, and Marianna, as if by magic, begins to turn it into cheese.
